Rant on Saturday Night

Ok...this really is a bit of a rant about a bunch of little nothing things, so bear with me...

I got called into work today. I'm not going to talk about it, but suffice to say that I was not really prepared to go in today as I had planned on working tomorrow. Now it seems both days are ruined. :( So, no love in the Wreck this Journal World...I was going to do some wrecking today. No reading (I bought a copy of "Julie and Julia" right before Mr. Kindle arrived...). No cleaning or laundry.

On the way to work the other day, I heard that they were having a Spa Expo at the Portland Expo Center...and they were talking about Swim Spas. I had never even heard of such a thing until about 6 or 8 months ago. The commercial has been on KPOJ non-stop for at least the last 4 days. Today, I was obsessing about it. "How nice would it be to come home at 9pm and climb into the spa/swim spa/hot tub? How expensive can that be?" Um...$20,000-40,000 is how expensive. So when they are yelling, "Close out!! 40-60% Off!!", what they really mean is, "It really doesn't matter how much of a sale we have because you won't be able to afford one anyway!". Disappointing.

On a positive note, I stopped by Powell's on the way home (I checked for a Kindle copy and it is not available) and picked up "The Artist's Way". I'm going to try it. I have been doing all these Arty things and really enjoying them. So, some more arty-ness, some more stuff to grow my life. This is a good thing. Very good.

So, no swim spa, no movie yet this weekend, but books are good. Kindle is good.


  1. Thumb's up getting 'The Artist's Way' - I just brought my copy from by the bed (reading in bed does me no good I've found except as a fast acting sedative)to my desk last night (cleaned my desk with my Saturday afternoon). I had bought mine when we started 12 Secrets for The Next Chapter and had intended then to quick read it through first and then DO it. Only read about 2/3 and then began to feel I'd gone about it wrong. Anyway - point is, wondered if you'd like a partner as you get into it? I volunteer - maybe it would benefit us both.

  2. Couldn't get your email button on your website to work so hope you'll get this. Re: Artist's Way - I just happened to stumble on this this morning. It could make logistics easier than figuring something out if you're game.

    Also - come by and visit Studio Lakeside for TA-DA! Tuesday -

    Hope you're having a FINE day!

  3. Yes it stinks how expensive they are but the way I got my Swim Spa was a bit different. I saved up for half of it first. That was easy because it was winter with nothing to do. Then I put the rest of it on my credit card. Now I am set to be fully paid off. I love this thing so much. I'm inspired to put a Steam Shower or Whirlpool Tub in now.
